It is cyclocross season and it seems like what guys at clinics I’ve done get most excited about is trying to learn how to jump barriers. I tell them that it isn’t really a very important part of the sport. And by the time it becomes important for them to be able to master it, they would have already done it enough that it would be in their quiver. But, everyone still wants to at least try it. Here are a couple videos of great bunny hopping and a little how to do it. The how to is a little basic, but you’ll get the idea. And Cody doing it at Nationals last year makes it looks like he’s accelerating as he’s climbing the stairs. Pretty great!
